I'll add to this. Part of my job is to help our customers make working systems
with the custom ICs that we build for them, since a project that just covers
NRE is a reeking disaster. The scary part is when we offer (often in the person
of one D. C. Sessions) to provide training and consulting services -- at no
added cost to the customer -- and get turned down.
For the rest (almost by definition not reading this list) it's worth remembering
that you may already have some valuable resources "on retainer." Use them.
